Christmas 2011 Snowflake #27
Is it June already? Wasn't it just New Year's? How time flies when you are enjoying yourself. Tatting that is. I think 27 snowflakes in 5 months is good progress. This is what I am refering to. Less than 7 months to Christmas.
So, continuing with the next snowflake from the Spitzen Kreationen book on pp 28, this was tatted in two rounds. Round 1 required 2m of Size 40 threads on the shuttle and Round 2 required 3m and 3.5m on Shuttle 1 and Shuttle 2 respectively. In case you are wondering, the small rings around the edge are not Josephine rings.
I am also contemplating getting this book - Tatting Artistry in Thread by Helma Siepmann but I wanted to get your frank comments if you have read it. Thanks so much.
